Fracture Me: Review


In this electrifying sixty-page companion novella to the New York Timesbestselling Shatter Me series, discover the fate of the Omega Point rebels as they go up against The Reestablishment. Set during and soon after the final moments of Unravel Me, Fracture Me is told from Adam's perspective.

As Omega Point prepares to launch an all-out assault on The Reestablishment soldiers stationed in Sector 45, Adam's focus couldn't be further from the upcoming battle. He's reeling from his breakup with Juliette, scared for his best friend's life, and as concerned as ever for his brother James's safety. And just as Adam begins to wonder if this life is really for him, the alarms sound. It's time for war.

On the battlefield, it seems like the odds are in their favor—but taking down Warner, Adam's newly discovered half brother, won't be that easy. The Reestablishment can't tolerate a rebellion, and they'll do anything to crush the resistance . . . including killing everyone Adam has ever cared about.

Fracture Me sets the stage for Ignite Me, the explosive finale in Tahereh Mafi's epic dystopian series. It's a novella not to be missed by fans who crave action-packed stories with tantalizing romance like Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Legend by Marie Lu.


I have mixed feelings about Adam in Fracture Me. On one hand I'm relieved that he finally seems to get out of his love-sickness and focus what's around him. But on the other I'm pretty pissed that his so-called undying love for Juliette is fading because of something that neither Adam nor Juliette wants to happen. I think the pissed-off part outweights the relieved part in more ways than one because I always think that Adam will always be there for Juliette. But now it seems like Adam's not that determined to win her back either, which really makes me angry. I sound like a bitch by admitting this, and you guys will probably call me sick, but I'm actually in a state of cruel happiness when I read the scene about Adam trying to process the thought of a certain loss on some level.

But despite all the new-found hatred (well, maybe not hatred, but close) for Adam, I still think this sets quite a good stage for Ignite Me. Though it doesn't give away too much, I can see that the people from Omega Point will fight the Reestablishment with everything they have now that they have lost Juliette (or at least they thought so). I can't wait to see how Ignite Me will turn out to be.

And I kind of don't want to see Adam in Ignite Me now. 

Rating: 7.5/10
